Resource Thread: Isolating Music and Voices in Star Wars
Time

It’s not working. I tried it with the Rise of Skywalker soundtrack but couldn’t get it to sync up, so I tried use a bit of audio from The Last Jedi and then that same bit of audio (2:00:01 - 2:05:46) from the score-only version of the movie. That also didn’t work, I think because the sound is mixed differently so the music is at different amplitudes in the movie?

I feel like the clothes would be a lot harder than faces, though. I’m not pretending to have any idea how deepfaking works, but the fact that there are plenty of videos on Youtube successfully replacing people’s faces and not people’s outfits makes me feel like clothes would be harder to change with current technology.

Is there any way around Finn trying to desert the Resistance in TLJ? I still want him to meet Rose.

Off the top of my head, I think it would be possible to make it sound like he’s exclusively trying to find and warn Rey, not actually leave permanently himself. But then his character arc over the movie wouldn’t have a clear starting point.

I actually had an idea a while ago that could be used to supplement that: Make it more about Rose’s journey. Basically, remove most of the instances of her optimistic theme music, have something more sinister play when she’s talking about how she hates Canto Bight, and remove the part where she releases the last Fathier and says “now it’s worth it.” Then when she talks about “not fighting what we hate” it would be like she’s only just figured it out. Although I’m not sure if that would quite work with the way she’s played.

I was thinking about how Krausfadr said that hopefully people would continue looking at ways to move Palpatine’s reveal to later in the movie, and I just thought of something: What if it were moved to the midpoint, right after Rey escapes the Star Destroyer? It would go something like:

  • Kylo feels he’s failed at getting Rey to team up with him against Palpatine
  • Kylo goes to Exegol to try and kill Palpatine by himself
  • Palpatine reveals he’s dying (someone already altered that scene to have him say “I don’t have long”) and offers to make Kylo the new Emperor
  • Kylo is told to kill Rey
  • The next time we see him he’s on Endor, seemingly ready to do just that (we’d need to remove some dialogue, but that shouldn’t be hard because a lot of what he says in that scene is spoken off-screen anyway).

Why wouldn’t Palpatine want to do the spirit ritual with Ben if he’s dying?

Presumably because he isn’t sure Ben is strong enough to be the new host, so he wants him to kill Rey to make sure. I kind of assumed that’s what was happening from the beginning (Darth Sidious is no stranger to the “pit your potential successors against each other and whoever survives is more worthy” plot).

<strong>Star Wars: The Bad Batch</strong> (animated series) - a general discussion thread - * <strong>SPOILERS</strong> *
Time

Here’s a weird question: If Omega was involved in the creation of the Bad Batch, and Boba (who was 10 in AOTC) was the first clone, and the war lasted 3 years, and regs age at 2x normal speed, and the fighting age for clones is 20, does that mean that Omega was already working in a lab at age 3, or that the Bad Batchers age even faster than other clones, or that their DNA was still being altered after they were born?

Replace every single line in the saga with “I have a bad feeling about this.”

Replace every line with “I have a x feeling about this,” where x is a single keyword from the original sentence.

“I’ve got a REEEEEYYYYYYY feeling about this…”

“I’ve got a seduced feeling about this…”
